Okay I want to take a single char from a sting and place into a char variable.
Heres my current code:

//The convert function takes a string of numbers and returns its integer value.
int convert(string strNum)
{
      char c;
      const int Size = strNum.size();
      int I;
      int J;
      int X;
      int Y;
      int total;
      int tmpint1;
      int tmpint2;
      const int plusone = Size + 1;
      
      for(I = 1; I < plusone; I++)
      {
            X = Size - I;
            if (X > 0)
            {
                  Y = 10;
                  for(J = 1; J < X; J++)
                  {
                        Y = Y * 10;
                  }
            }
            else Y = 1;
            c = strNum.substr(I,I);
            tmpint1 = c - '0';
            tmpint2 = tmpint1 * Y;
            total = total + tmpint2;
      }
      return total;
}

The only error with it is:

sr1 $ CC -o Program08 Program08.cpp
"Program08.cpp", line 182: Error: Cannot assign std::string  to char.
1 Error(s) detected.

How could I fix this?

This should work:

c = strNum.at(I);

But I believe that you want to do this conversion yourself for some reason.

Hope you know "atoi" and related functions doing the same.

is there any other way to do it, see I dont think that I am allowed to use either of those methods

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Why not just use builtin c++ functions to do your convertion

e.g.

#include <stdlib.h>

atoi(strNum.c_str());

You should just be able to call atoi ... ( atoi(strNum.c_str()); )  whats the error you get when u try to call?

if it is a c++ string, you can simply do c = strNum[i] where string::size_type i = 0; i < strNum.length(); ++i
strNum.at(i) is its functional equivalent

chhokra_expert is correct. if you have string why you use these code ?!
but here i will write you the function for changing the String to Integer :

int String_to_Integer(char *s)
{
      int value=0;
      while (*s)
      {
            value*=10;
            value+=*s-48;          // Or you can use : value+=*s-'0';
            s++;
      }
      return value;
}

this function will convert the string to Integer (just Integer not Float) .
you can use this
